Espurr in Pokemon Go

There are plenty of Pokemon that can be caught in Pokemon Go, including Espurr, but can it be Shiny? Here’s everything you need to know about Shiny Espurr in Niantic’s hit mobile game.

Is Shiny Espurr in Pokemon Go?

To put it simply, yes, Espurr can be Shiny. Its Shiny form is a light pink color and is available in both its male and female genders. But like with all the rare variants, encountering one won’t come easy as its spawn chance is low.

While you can find one in the wild, you’d have a better chance of waiting for the Psychic-type ‘mon to appear in a Spotlight Hour or in a Community Day pool where the rates are boosted.

If you are dead set on trying to hunt one down for yourself, you can use The Silph Road’s Global Nest Atlas to pinpoint the location of any local “nests.” A nest is a point where a specific Pokemon is known to appear regularly. If you have an Espurr one near you, it’s worth checking it out to see if you can get lucky and find a Shiny.

Espurr can also be in Research Breakthroughs, so check which one is active currently just in case it just happens to be the ‘mon.
